Odoriferous water?


City of Fort Wayne seal


If you have noticed a change in the smell or taste of city water, here’s the reason why.

From Fort Wayne City Utilities:

While we all welcome warmer temperatures, it can sometimes create a quick snow and ice melt in our rivers. Quick melts often create a slightly different smell in the water from what usually feeds into our Filtration Plant from the St. Joe River. We can assure you that the water has gone through our normal, high quality filtration process and is safe to drink even though some residents may notice a change in smell and taste. The issue should clear up in a couple of days. Again, the water is safe to drink.
